What are you wanting to download? ?????

geek_ferita, Jun 14, 9:52 am

You have to find a website that has the torrent file you are looking for. Then you just have to open it. Try isohunt.com

UTorrent have a good FAQ/guide on their website or try googling "wiki bittorrent"

If you are looking to steal stuff (pirated softwar music etc) then you just incriminated yourself on one of New Zealands most used websites.

Well be thankful I haven't done it yet because I don't know how to use it for a start.

Ask one of the boys in Gaming for an invite to torrentleech.

have you ever jaywalked? Im sick of people like yourself riding the high and mighty self righteous train on here. Im a musician and I couldn't give a rats if people download my music. Try www.mininova.org also to search what you are after.

Thanks ryanm2 .

geek_crab2, Jun 14, 11:47 am

That's cool, ryanm2. Can you give us links to you music?

geek_cybertao, Jun 14, 11:50 am

Ryan? You there? If it's bandwidth you are worried about, you should upload it to a service like www.jamendo.com and perhaps even earn some money from doing it. They have a bittorrent service set up, their own tracker even. There is always a number of generous seeders, I never remove anything I download from the seeding queue myself. The creativity and good will from communities that truly care about free music is fantastic.

Self explanitary, stick something in search and let it. How hard is that?

It's not like you've never been 51+ on a 50kmh-1 zone.....

geek_meelo12, Jun 14, 1:04 pm

What's worse is no-one downloads your music.

geek_hakatere1, Jun 14, 1:20 pm

Jaywalking and going at 51kph isn't the same as stealing.

No one wants legal torrents lol how are you supposed to get windows vista, XP, or an artists latest album for example? lol

geek_nzoomed, Jun 14, 2:38 pm

you dont think i'm actually going to give a link to a torrent site do you? That takes all the fun out of getting OP to figure it out themselves!

Re: 8 I have been the product manager for a software company and I also know how small some of these companies are. You may think that because a software program is widely known, the makers must be making millions, its often not the case. A lot of software companies are just a group of people and some dont even have offices. They rely on the money the software makes to feed their families etc. You wouldnt walk into harvey normans and grab a some software off the shelf. Why do you think its ok to steal it on the internet for?

geek_ferita, Jun 14, 2:53 pm

I notice that ryanm has suddenly gone quiet as soon as the request was made to post us some links for his music. Makes me think he may be a bit more sensitive about it than he says.

geek_executor1, Jun 14, 2:56 pm

maybe her music sucks

geek_0800xford, Jun 14, 2:58 pm

Its not the same thing lets say its the year 2200, and a machine has been invented that could "duplicate" objects at an atomic level, and duplicate say a plasma panel, or a car, would that be stealing? hardly, it would be "copying"! PMSL

geek_0800xford, Jun 14, 3:14 pm

Apart from the fact you can't make something from nothing. And the design you are copying has cost a lot of money in research and design. If such technology existed, who's going to invest in developing a TV no one has to buy?

geek_cybertao, Jun 14, 3:15 pm

Exactly! LOL The same could be said with software, who would want to develop software no one has to buy? lol
